This one is not really a speaker meeting this is a fascinating recording from 1978 of Ruth Hock, AAs 1st secretary talking about Bill W and the early history of AA and the creation of the Big Book. I highly recommend if you are a bit of an AA history geek, and even if you are not.

There is a Q and A at the end, you cant hear the questions and she doesn't really recap the questions well. This ends a little abruptly when the meeting leader is calling on her sponsor Cliff. Recorded in Glendale AZ 3-12-78.


Amanda speaking about the 2nd tradition for 10 min followed by the main speaker Meghan B as the main speaker sharing her story in 2009 at the atlantic group.


Mark L. - A sober stand up comic, brings his unique comedy to AA events. He will make you laugh and you may not even notice the serious bits he tosses in about alcoholism. Another earlier post that deserves a wider audience, he is very funny! (repost from 5/13)


John L telling his story amusingly at an unknown time and an unknown event.
